Fate or free will? Cynical human businessman David Michael Corrigan is a real take-charge kind of guy. Supremely confident, this multimillionaire has no tolerance for brown-nosing sycophants or parasitic bottom feeders looking for a free ride.When a scruffy-looking young woman shows up at his front door late one night to "help" his dying mother, he's sure it's a scam. The only reason he allows her to step foot in his house is because his mother likes her. It has nothing to do with the fact that she has the biggest, prettiest gray eyes he's ever seen, or that he can't seem to stop thinking about her.Ryssa has enough to deal with. Earth-bound and indentured in servitude in a Demon-run club, her best friend is a serial-killer's ghost and she lives in crummy apartment with a lactose-intolerant vampire. She doesn't need the scathing derision of a close-minded, condescending mortal male.Too bad her angelic nature won't allow her to forsake the powerfully good soul hiding beneath all that bristling arrogance. Nor will his conscience allow him to ignore his instincts that there is so much more beneath the surface of that beautiful, defensive street rat.
